I read this site the other day and was intrigued by his tale of Elvis Presley’s love of the Fool’s Gold Loaf.
According to the site:
“It’s a sandwich that consists of a loaf of buttered bread, a full jar of creamy peanut butter, a full jar of grape jelly, and a pound of bacon.”
I’d heard of Presley’s love of peanut butter and banana sandwiches, but never this thing.
How about you? Tempted?
What I find amazing is that one loaf is considered a sandwich. (Presley was reputed to have eaten two at one sitting.) Maybe like a sub?
That leads to this question: What do you call a submarine sandwich? A hoagie? A grinder? A hero? Or poorboy?
I used to call them poorboys, but have changed to subs and I think that’s because of the national chain of sandwich shops.
Here’s a cool site that defines where you’re from by what you call a sandwich.
